She has been designated as a “cultural treasure” by the Japanese government. In their New York debut, she and her daughter Hikaru will introduce the dynamics and techniques of the six-hundred-fifty year tradition of dance that lies at the heart of the Noh theater. The Uzawas will perform climactic dance sequences from four major plays and present behind-the-scenes details of costume and choreography. An intimate glimpse of one of the world’s major dance traditions.

With: Sonny Knight and The Lakers The Rhythm Revue with Felix Hernandez For Sonny Knight and the Lakers, last year was equal parts unexpected and deserved. The creation of their debut album, I’m Still Here, nearly 50 years after a young Sonny recorded his first single, began a tidal wave of accomplishments that includes a successful international tour, critical attention from NPR’s World Café and WBEZ’s Sound Opinions, and plenty of love from their hometown of Minneapolis. These hard-soul powerhouses have quickly gained ground in their hometown, topping the Minneapolis Star Tribune poll “Twin Cities Critic’s Tally” as the best live act of 2014 due to their “high-energy…funk-blasting” shows. Soul connoisseurs to novice music listeners alike can find common ground in Sonny Knight and the Lakers irrefutable showmanship and exuberance on stage. Felix Hernandez brought his funky dance party, The Rhythm Revue, last year, and after celebrating 23 years of sold-out shows at the now-closed Roseland Ballroom. Hernandez returns with the New York institution to kick off the evening.

With: Jamie Lidell Fixed (DJs JDH and Dave P) Brooklyn United Marching Band The soul singing dance music eclecticist Jamie Lidell is “the progenitor of his own completely original genre that no one else has been able to recreate” (KCRW) and “a master-craftsman of genre hybrids packing potent lyrical punches of love” (Stereogum). Known for bringing together disparate musical influences, Lidell sites Mtume, Cameo, New Jack Swing, Bobby Brown and George Clinton as inspirations for his 2013 self-titled debut latest LP. JDH and Dave P, hailing from New York and Philadelphia respectively, are the duo of DJs behind the FIXED parties, which have been running for over nine years. They have toured numerous times with Simian Mobile Disco and Soulwax and have recently played Coachella, PS1, Camp Bisco, FYF Fest, and at Pacha Ibiza.

With: Poncho Sanchez Bobbito Garcia Salsa Salsa Dance For more than three decades as both a leader and a sideman, conguero Poncho Sanchez has stirred up a fiery stew of straight-ahead jazz, gritty soul music, and infectious melodies and rhythms from a variety of Latin American and South American sources. His influences are numerous, but among the more prominent figures that inform his music are two of the primary architects of Latin jazz – conga drummer and composer Chano Pozo and trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie. Salsa Salsa Dance kicks off the evening with a dance lesson, followed by a set by world-renowned DJ/writer/sports-commentator Bobbito Garcia.
